good reel with tons of drag, only down side is the minor flex in the reel seat but that doesn't bother me. really wish there was a braid spool for this one.
good value, good capacity, awesome drag.
can use a braid spool, can use some reinforcement to the reel foot and stalk, minor play in the spool.
reel foot problem

purchased the 4000 size for inshore saltwater fishing.I installed it on a star steller lite 7 foot 10-20 lb line rating rod. The reel foot is so thin it is moving inside the reel seat.I do not want to go any lighter on the rod because it won't match properly.My only option is to install some tape or other material to tighten it up,something i do not want to do after spending 215 dollars.
perfect line lay,good drag,light weight.
reel foot moving inside reel seat.body of reel feels like cheap plastic.Daiwa calls it composite.
